I am getting a message that my backup could not be completed.   I can't even enter the time capsule now because there is a different icon in place of it.  It is a square with a yellow exclaimation point indicating the warning sign.   When I click on that it says back up sync is currently idle. please sign into elements account to activate.  I have never had this problem.  I don't know what this means. Please advise
